Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt Join Ghostbusters: Afterlife Sequel

A series of stars have been added to the ensemble of the upcoming ‘Ghostbusters’ movie that include Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd, and Ernie Hudson.

AceShowbizKumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt are confirmed to be among the new cast members for the new “Ghostbusters” movie. The duo join the ensemble for the untitled sequel to the 2021 film “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” alongside comedian James Acaster and Emily Alyn Lind.

Stars from the last film, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Celeste O’Connor, Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, and Ernie Hudson, are all returning. Gil Kenan is sitting behind the lens while Jason Reitman, who directed the previous picture, is moving into a writer-producer role alongside co-writer Kenan and Jason Blumenfeld.

Little is known about the sequel but sources say that the plan is to return to New York City and the firehouse made famous in the original “Ghostbusters” movies. It is set to be released in December.

Kenan said about directing the movie, “It’s an absolute honour to pick up the proton pack and step behind the camera for the next chapter of the Spengler family saga. I just wish I could go back to 1984 and tell the kid in the sixth row of the Mann Valley West that one day he was going to get to direct a ‘Ghostbusters’ film.”

Jason – the son of the late “Ghostbusters” director Ivan Reitman – added, “A few years ago, my father handed me the keys to Ecto-1, and together we made ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’. Words will never express how grateful I am to have made a film with my father by my side.”

“It’s now time to hand those keys to my creative partner and fellow Ghostbuster Gil Kenan, a brilliant director who will keep the Spengler spirit alive. I can only hope to provide him the same producorial care and support that my father showed me.”
